Scout’s Honored 2018

Over the past year, I’ve cracked open the 2017 Scout’s Honored issue many times. It’s helpful to have my neighbors’ advice at my fingertips, whether I’m looking for a new restaurant to try or figuring out where to catch a show.

We’re excited to present this updated guide to your city, determined by you and featuring the best of the businesses that you love.

This year we’ve taken a deeper dive into those businesses’ stories than ever before. We sat down with Aaron MacDougall of Broadsheet Coffee Roasters and heard how a passion became a second career (p.33). We learned how the manager of Chameleon Tattoo & Body Piercing worked his way up from being a “garbage man” at the business (p.15). We drooled over dishes made by Cantabrigians who hail from all over the world. And now we can tell you where to find saffron-butter poached lobster (p.26), or what being “raised by hippies in the woods” does to a person’s capacity for creativity (p.20).

Usually we get to find and choose the stories, but this time it was all in your hands, and we had a wonderful time following your recommendations.
